Is there a way to increase the "pause allowance" when dialing the digits of a phone number? For example, when dialing a number I am not familiar with (say I'm reading it off of a piece of paper), I find that I have to be really quick on the draw, otherwise I'm told, "I'm sorry you've entered an incorrect extension". It's really frustrating because the phone barely allows for any delay in between pressing each number. Is there a way to change this? Thanks for your help.

This is very frustrating!  Is there no answer to this?  Anyone?

Boy, I feel the same way.  It's really silly how fast the system cuts you off.

getting an extension connected instead of waiting for the other 4-7 digits is confusing and frustrating

If you dial the number while leaving the handset on the hook it will not automatically connect.

The reason why its automatically connecting is due to the phone's internal dial plan, which you cannot change unless you have unlocked phones.
